The next bike.



Will kind of look like this, only with a Rocco World Cup for rear shock and 66 RC3 for fork.

Who says shopping, I decided on the bike and the spec already. I'll just order the frame when I'm ready to at work in the future.

Whats with the triple Crank? That's different seeing a triple crank on a freeride type bike.

for some reason ppl think its wimpy to have a granny gear, i usually use second on uphills and 3rd on descents, but its there for a reason, use it when you need it.

FR style bikes generally don't remove the granny gear but the largest cogs, often replacing them with a bashguard. DH people often run smaller cassettes to compensate for this.

DHers need one because they only have 1 chain ring up front and if that gets screwed up you got problems.
